I believe that 2009 is the opportune time, both to get involved with tax lien or tax deed investing, if you've been sitting on the fence and to purchase investment real estate. The problem that I have found in learning how to invest in real estate without getting burnt is that there are tons of programs out there. How do you know which one is right for you? And most of the trainings, boot camps, and home study courses cost an arm and a leg. Instead of putting $10,000 down on your first property, it's not uncommon to spend that on training - I know I did. And where did it get me? We'll it didn't make me a millionaire. It didn't even get me my first deal.
My husband and I got our first deal at an auction. And then we were shocked to find out that we needed to put 20% down in order to get the financing for this deal. We only had 30 days till closing and the contract was not contingent on getting the financing. Fortunately we had financing lined up and had just enough money to put down 20% instead of the 10% that we were expecting to need. Now we knew that if we were going to do any more real estate deals we would have to use other methods to find and buy properties: Methods that required little or no money down.
The good news is that now I have found a couple of real estate experts that I can honestly say offer an excellent value for the price of their training. I will be working with these 2 women this year to maximize my efforts in real estate investing. That’s right, these 2 experts that I have found are women, in a field that is dominated by men. And these 2 women are more successful at real estate investing than most of the men out there.
One of them has been in the business for over 20 years – since she was 21, she is an extremely successful real estate investor. She even became a real estate broker and runs 3 successful real estate offices. And she travels the country giving very successful real estate trainings and boot camps. The other expert started her real estate investing business less than 10 years ago, and she has built one of the most successful internet marketing businesses as well as several successful real estate training programs and a very successful real estate business.
